#FitFam

So, I’ve been cutting for about 9 weeks now. I’ve lost 11 lbs.

Progress in spite of the cut—

Squat: 120 lbs 5x5

Bench: 80 lbs 5x5

OHP: 50 lbs 5x5

Barbell row: 90 lbs 5x5

Deadlift: 140 lbs 1x5

Cable crunches: 50 lbs 3x10

Lifting 3 days/week. Cardio 2 days/week.

I’m…. kind of obsessed with the gym.

“You’re not an African because you’re born in Africa. You’re an African because Africa is born in you. It’s in your genes…. your DNA….your entire biological make up. Whether you like it or not, that’s the way it is. However, if you were to embrace this truth with open arms….my, my, my….what a wonderful thing.” - Dr. Marimba Ani

After a long hiatus…

I will do better at updating tumblr.

I miss writing.. well, typing. I tried to keep a journal, but I don’t know what it is — maybe technology? — it’s difficult to keep a traditional journal. I would rather type my thoughts.

New Year calls for Reflection

It has been a long and seemingly rewarding year: 2012. We’re two days away from January 1st. New beginnings. New challenges. New expectations. Unforeseen mistakes and sub-optimal let downs. It is all coming. The only fear for me is the unknown. I don’t know what order will come of these, but I do know that I can do my best to achieve my goals.

Fitness, Family, Focus

2013 is the year of the “Real World.” I call it the “Real World” because I’m graduating from Howard in May. I admit to being uneasy. Going to school for over 16 years straight can sort of handicap you. School is all I know. And at least for now, it will be over. Technically you enter the “Real World” after high school, but that’s not true. I never stopped going to school. I never stopped taking Winter Break. I never stopped taking Summer Break. I never stopped taking Spring Break. On May 11, 2013, the force of the “Real World” will hit us college grads like a 90mph fast ball to the face. You cringe just thinking about it, huh? Me too.

Opportunities

But even while bracing for a crack in the face from this fast ball, I’m excited. I’m excited for the opportunities and room to grow. It’s the perfect time to learn. Making mistakes at 21 is preferable to missteps at 40.

So, that’s all for now. I’ll have more about the internship, classes, countdown to graduation, work, and family in later posts.

Stay tuned.
